I have added an English Index to my "Dictionary of the Language of D'ni" here:

http://www.eldalamberon.com/dni_dict.htm#EnglishGlosses

Hopefully this will help in those cases where you cannot remember a D'ni word whose English translation is hard to search for in the dictionary. Perhaps it will prove useful in other ways.

I am also working on restoring cross-reference links to historical citations, where the previously referenced archival data is
no longer available.

Shorah,
Kh'reestrefah

That is handy.

Would you consider putting the English on a second/separate page?

This is certainly an idea that is worth considering; but I could not think of any benefits to having the index at a completely separate url.

If you are exploring the evidence for the D'ni language (the main purpose of the dictionary) then multiple look-ups using the English index are more efficient with it on the same page, since clicking a link does not have to open a new instance of the dictionary text.

If you want to have separate views of the dictionary and the index then you can control-click a link and choose "open in a new tab/window."
